About BOTOX and Xeomin
To help in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness in Las Vegas, NV is proud to offer BOTOX and Xeomin to local individuals. These injectable procedures provide outstanding results and are very common among both men and women. Both products can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX and Xeomin are made of a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, the products are injected to smooth the skin. These injections are administered by cosmetic surgeon and board-certified family practitioner Dr. Reuben Thaker between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
BOTOX and Xeomin are great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. They can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. They are a terrific nonsurgical option if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows and around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result, and it is longer-lasting.
Xeomin and BOTOX treatments are administered in an outpatient procedure conveniently at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness. If it is your first time to visit us in Las Vegas, NV, we typically perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Thaker. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX or Xeomin will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. Your injections will typically take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete, and then you can resume your normal routine as soon as you feel able.
What to Expect
After the procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you will not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do BOTOX and Xeomin cost?
The cost for your injections will depend on which and how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, Dr. Thaker will develop your personal treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. Both products can produce beautiful results when performed by a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Thaker, but it can be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can get points for BOTOX, Xeomin, and other Allergan products.
How long will my results last?
Your results may last up to four months. Most patients make an appointment every season to maintain their results, but you may come back sooner. If you are getting injections while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule treatments further apart. After listening to your goals and developing your treatment plan, Dr. Thaker will be able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX and Xeomin) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both treatments that reduce wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX and Xeomin relax overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease static wrinkles. After hearing your goals, Dr. Thaker may recommend BOTOX, Xeomin, fillers, or a combination of injectables for a "liquid facelift."
What's the difference between BOTOX and Xeomin?
BOTOX and Xeomin are brands of wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin (type A). Each of these relaxes facial muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. There are subtle differences between them, including the dosing amounts, treatment spread, and length of results. Dr. Thaker will choose the best injection to fit your goals.
